Vidya Balan!: Vidya Balan gets into the skin of the character. Demands a smoking ban on the set because she's playing a pregnant woman
Vidya Balan is playing a six-month pregnant woman in Sujoy Ghosh's Kahaani. To get into the skin of the character, she has called for a No Smoking ban on the set.
While the smokers on the set might resent her call for the ban, the director is maha pleased with her dedication.
Sujoy says, "She's really into the character. So much so that after a while she started freaking us out.
She started behaving like an expectant mother and wouldn't let anyone smoke in front of her.. and we were like.. huh? Pregnant!? Who? So I think for Balan once she is mentally there, physical bits are baaye haath ka khel."
The director might want to lookout for more clues of obsessing with the character. It might get really scary if she started eating for two, or started feeling morning sickness.
